The Nixon Star Wars: Death Star collection was released back in May. It only makes sense that the latest Nixon Star Wars collection focuses now on the Light side. The latest additions focus on the Millennium Falcon, the freighter made famous by smuggler Han Solo and Chewbacca, his Wookie co-pilot.
The Millennium Falcon, originally known as YT-1300 492727ZED, was a modified YT-1300 light freighter with a storied history stretching back to the decades before the Clone Wars and the rise of the Galactic Empire.
The Nixon Star Wars: Millennium Falcon collection consists of three timepieces: The Millenium Falcon 46mm 46 SW (in the center in the image above), 44mm Ranger Chrono SW (on the left) and the 42mm Sentry SS SW (on the right). Each incorporates elements inspired by the iconic freigther.
The 46 SW features features a grey gunmetal inspired by the Millenium Falcon’s exterior. Its dial features the cockpit window at the 12 o’clock mark and a dial ring that mimics the ship’s hyperdrive.
The Ranger Chrono’s sub-dials are inspired by the main cockpit view with the day chrono one sporting a cannon fire hand.
The Sentry SS SW expands the cockpit view to encompass the whole dial with the top half dominated by the view in hyperdrive and the bottom half by the ship’s exterior. The second hand is inspired by Millennium Falcon’s cannon fire.
All three Nixon Star Wars: Millenium Falcon watches use a Miyota Japanese quartz movement and come with a stainless steel case with hardened mineral crystal glass and a stainless steel screw down caseback engraved with the watch name, the Falcon’s cockpit view and Han Solo’s ‘Never tell me the odds’ motto.
The Nixon Star Wars: Millennium Falcon collection is now available directly from Nixon. The 46 SW sells for US$425 (about CA$540), the Ranger Chrono for US$525 (about CA$670) and the Sentry SS SW for US$285 (about CA$360).
